The Sea Detective


The Sea Detective

By Mark Douglas-Home

Snappy Review

Why oh why have we not heard of him before?
Why has it taken so long to arrive here?
Brilliant oceanographic exploration of several crimes that twist and weave a fantastic tale.


Cal McGill is an Edinburgh-based oceanographer, environmentalist and one-of-a-kind investigator.

Using his knowledge of the waves – ocean currents, prevailing winds, shipping records – McGill can track where objects came from, or where they’ve gone. It’s a unique skill that can help solve all sorts of mysteries.

Such as when two severed feet wash up miles apart on two different islands off the coast of Scotland. Most strangely forensics tests reveal that the feet belong to the same body.

As Cal McGill investigates, he unravels a web of corruption, exploitation and violence, which threatens many lives across the globe – very soon including his own.
